Forgotten City First Tier Sold Out
Our city population is now well over 500 and we looking to reach a capacity of 800. You can still get your citizenship papers (tickets) from http://www.theforgottencity.org/citizenship.html. Price is set to $100 now (we’ve reduced this from the previously advertised amount of $110, yeah!)
The mutant vehicle Sebastian (part fish, all awesome) needs help to fund repairs from attending events like Bequinox, Forgotten City, Youtopia, Burning Man, Halloween parade etc. You can help by purchasing a T-shirt to support the cause at: http://alldayplaya.weebly.com/
106.1 FM Forgotten City Radio is accepting original music, unique content, and DJ mixes. We are also looking for people to host live interviews and interesting content during the event. The station will be in Center Camp and will be OPEN TO ALL. Yes, you read that right, you can be on the radio during FC! Stop by the station table at Center Camp and sign up! Also please upload your content somewhere and send Cameron the link, firstname.lastname@example.org
Our medical station at the Forgotten City will be collecting gently used or new teddy bears or stuffed animals no bigger than 8 inches. These will be donated to AMR & MedicWest for children who are sick, injured or in traumatic situations to help comfort them through the difficult time. Last year Gina & her Girl Scout troupe collected over 400 bears & all were used. She met some of the parents of kids who get the bears & their kids still have them & won't part with them. These bears help in so many ways, they open communication between paramedics & scared kids, and they help in child abuse cases where kids can't even be touched. With these bears & the patience of the medics so much can be gained. Kids are often forgotten during EMS calls when their parents are sick. These stuffed animals give them a buddy, who goes through what they go through, so they aren't alone. We will have boxes at Forgotten City for donations & these boxes will be marked special that they are from Forgotten City. Look for Medical on the map!
Handheld laser ban
In 2014 a ranger was blinded in one eye at Burning Man. This has resulted in a ban on handheld lasers at Burning Man and Forgotten City is following suit. Please don’t bring a handheld laser as it will be confiscated by the Manager on duty. For more information check out:
If you want to save the effort in either pounding in rebar or drilling in lag bolts to secure your tent/shade structure then why not try securing it with 5 gallon water containers (filled with water)? This can save a lot of effort and also means you don’t need to bring out a drill or heavy duty hammer or mallet.
Art grants closed on April 28th and we’ve already sent out over $9,000 in art grants. There are still a couple of art grants we’re finalizing before announcing the projects that have been funded but we’ll have that to you by the next newsletter.
Cathedral of Souls Last Build Day: May 9-10
Cathedral of Souls is the icon that will be burn Sunday night at The Forgotten City. If you would like to participate by helping construct it you can at 10am May 9th and 10th. We're going to finish building the sections, put her together completely, gloat at our own badassity, and then tear her apart in advance of the event. It might only take one day if enough of YOU SHOW UP AND HELP. THIS IS NOT A PARTY, IT'S AT SOMEONE'S HOME. WEAR CLOSED TOED SHOES, COME SOBER AND BRING TOOLS. At Mike Cee's house (XUZA Art Car).
